  Vikings | Adrian Peterson discontent in Minnesota?    Wed Mar 25, 04:30 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is wanted back in Minnesota, but the question is if Peterson wants to come back. Head coach Mike Zimmer said he doesn't believe Peterson would be a disruption if he did return to the Vikings. 'I want him to want to be [in Minnesota], like I want all of my players to want to be there. I've been in situations before that I thought were not the best situations.'

Footballguys view: Back and forth and back and forth. Peterson wants out according to his agent, but the Vikings are not budging. Zimmer added that he thinks his football relationship with Peterson is a good one in its current state. We'll see something give sometime....stay tuned.

  Vikings | No plans to trade Adrian Peterson    Wed Mar 25, 10:43 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is disgruntled and reportedly wants out of Minnesota, but head coach Mike Zimmer said the team has no plans to trade him.

Footballguys view: That's the plan right now, but if Peterson is unhappy the team might be persuaded to change their mind. What else could change their mind is a couple of premium picks. Peterson is still one of the best backs in the game, and there would be more than a few teams interested in adding the superstar back.

  Vikings | Agent wants Adrian Peterson to move on    Mon Mar 23, 07:48 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's agent, Ben Dogra, said Monday, March 23, that he doesn't think 'it's in Adrian's best interest to play in Minnesota' in 2015 and beyond.

Footballguys view: Peterson remains under contract with the Vikings, and the team brass expects him to remain in Minnesota. Dogra also refused a meeting with general manager Rick Spielman several days ago.

  Vikings | MIN GM expects Adrian Peterson to stay    Mon Mar 23, 05:55 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be part of the Vikings next season, according to general manager Rick Spielman. 'Adrian's a member of our football team,' Spielman said. 'He is under contract with us, and we are focused on the 2015 season and expect Adrian to be a part of that.'

Footballguys view: Peterson has met with team officials twice this offseason to discuss his future. Spielman would not say if Peterson has asked for a trade or if the team has received interest from other teams.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson wants out of Minny?    Mon Mar 23, 12:42 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's preference is to play elsewhere than with the Vikings in 2015, according to a league source. He is under contract through the 2017 season and is scheduled to make $12.75 million this year. The Vikings look like they'd be willing to pay him in 2015, and a restructured contract would likely be appealing for Peterson. Minnesota could call Peterson's bluff and force him to decide between playing this year or sitting out a second straight season.

Footballguys view: Here we go again. Every week it seems like there's a news item about Peterson being unhappy with the Vikings. If they're not going to release him (as they've indicated), then the Vikings could put Peterson on the trade block.

  Vikings | HC changing stance on Adrian Peterson?    Sun Mar 22, 08:28 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's future remains unclear, but head coach Mike Zimmer recently said that the Vikings are 'excited' to have him back. Zimmer had previously said that if Peterson wanted out of Minnesota that the Vikings would accommodate the request.

Footballguys view: This is a game of cat and mouse going on right now. Peterson is reportedly unhappy with the Vikings, and he could be on the trade block. His future in Minnesota is unclear at this time.

  Vikings | Minnesota wants Adrian Peterson back    Fri Mar 20, 02:32 PM

Updating an ongoing story, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is clearly wanted back by the organization, and general manager Rick Spielman once again stressed that they will make every effort to bring back their star running back in 2015. 'Adrian is under contract and a member of our football team,' Spielman said. 'We've stated that, our owner has stated it, our head coach has stated it. There is no question that we want Adrian Peterson back on our football team.'

Footballguys view: This story is far from over. The Vikings recently informed Peterson that they will not release him, but a trade remains possible. Minnesota could also sign Peterson to a less expensive three-year deal but guarantee him more money.

  Cardinals | Arizona willing to trade for Peterson?    Fri Mar 20, 02:22 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson remains unhappy with the Vikings. The Arizona Cardinals are reportedly willing to offer a high draft pick in return for Peterson, if he becomes available.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals are in a Super Bowl window, and they want to upgrade their rushing attack. Adding Peterson would swing the power balance in the NFC. We love Andre Ellington, but he's not built to be a featured back. If Arizona adds Peterson they'll be able to run the ball with authority while playing suffocating defense. So long as Carson Palmer stays healthy, Arizona could make a deep playoff run.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson won't come cheap    Fri Mar 20, 12:38 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, who won't be released by the team, is scheduled to make $12.75 million in 2015, and the feeling is that he won't come cheaply in a trade. The Vikings are believed to be looking for at least a second-round pick and another piece in a potential trade.

Footballguys view: Peterson's agent, Ben Dogra, may be trying to facilitate a trade by effectively telling all 31 other teams that the only way to acquire his client is through a trade.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson won't be released    Wed Mar 18, 11:29 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's agent was told Wednesday, March 18, by general manager Rick Spielman that the running back will not be released by the team.

Footballguys view: He won't be released...that doesn't mean he's staying in Minnesota. We could see the Vikings move Peterson if the price was right. We could also seeing him staying put. Stay tuned, this one is not over yet.

  Cardinals | ARI saying no to Adrian Peterson?    Tue Mar 17, 02:07 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson may not be going to the Arizona Cardinals. A reliable source close to the team has said the Cardinals wouldn't add Peterson with three years and $45 million left on his contract.

Footballguys view: The Cardinals are looking for upgrades to the running back position, and Peterson would certainly help--but for a huge price. The Cowboys could be the team that's most interested in acquiring Peterson at this time.

  Vikings | Minnesota willing to pay Adrian Peterson?    Mon Mar 16, 05:46 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is likely to remain with the team heading into 2015, as the Vikes appear willing to pay Peterson for the rest of his contract.

Footballguys view: There's not much clarity in the Peterson situation right now. If we were to guess, we believe Peterson stays with the Vikings--but that certainly isn't set in stone.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson meeting with Vikes again    Thu Mar 12, 02:46 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will meet with the team again after meeting with general manager Rick Spielman and ownership Monday, March 9, according to source with knowledge of the situation. Peterson also met with owners Zygi and Mark Wilf Monday about his concerns about returning in 2015. Peterson was put back on the commissioner's exempt list, which has allowed Minnesota to resume contact with him.

Footballguys view: It's hard to get a grasp on exactly where the two parties stand, but you have to imagine at least part of it is about money. The Vikings owe him $12.75 this season and that's a lot even for Peterson--a superstar in the league. Peterson is probably dealing with hurt feelings, but that money is likely the issue. The problem for Peterson is, he has zero leverage, especially after last year. He's still a very good back but the age and his contract are going to make it tough for anyone to trade for him.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson visit goes well    Thu Mar 5, 12:48 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's meeting with head coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman Wednesday, March 4, went well after the parties spent more than four hours at Peterson's home. 'We had a great dialogue and they were able to understand where I was coming from and concerns my family and I still have. We respect each other and hopefully the situation can pan out so that everyone involved is content,' Peterson said.

Footballguys view: This is a good sign for the Vikings. Nobody knows where Peterson is going to end up in 2015. There's a chance that he stays with Minnesota if they can patch things up.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson talking to Vikes    Mon Mar 2, 12:46 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, who was put back on the commissioner's exempt list last week, has had 'open dialogue' with the team, according to general manager Rick Spielman. Spielman continues to say that the Vikings want Peterson to return in 2015. However, Peterson has been 'uneasy' about returning.

Footballguys view: The future for Peterson is unclear right now. The Vikings can cut Peterson or talk to him about restructuring his contract at any time since he's back on the exempt list.

  Vikings | Jerome Felton would return    Sat Feb 28, 03:12 AM

Free-agent FB Jerome Felton (Vikings) has not ruled out a reunion with the Minnesota Vikings in 2015 if RB Adrian Peterson returns to the club.

Footballguys view: Felton blasted open holes for Peterson during his 2,000-yard season. He's the best fullback on the open market, and Felton should draw interest from teams like the Broncos who need a fullback.

  Cardinals | Adrian Peterson to land in Arizona?    Fri Feb 27, 02:35 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson could be a trade option for the Arizona Cardinals with QB Carson Palmer and WR Larry Fitzgerald nearing the end of their careers in the desert. The Cardinals are built to win now, and The Arizona Republic's Kent Somers said he wouldn't be surprised if general manager Steve Keim and head coach Bruce Arians elect to pursue Peterson.

Footballguys view: It would be an interesting fit, but it sounds like a pipe dream at this moment. If Peterson is added to Arizona's roster, it would crush the fantasy value of Andre Ellington. The Cardinals could use Ellington as a feature back again this year. If healthy, he has the ability to put up good numbers--he just needs a good complementary back behind him.

  Colts | Indy a trade option for Adrian Peterson?    Fri Feb 27, 02:33 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson could be a trade target for the Indianapolis Colts. QB Andrew Luck hasn't had a successful running game behind him so far in Indianapolis. However, Colts running backs not named RB Trent Richardson averaged close to 5.0 yards per carry in the last two seasons.

Footballguys view: The Colts are certainly in a Super Bowl window. Adding Peterson would make a ton of sense. If they can't get Peterson, then adding a free agent veteran like Frank Gore could work.

  Cowboys | Dallas an option for Adrian Peterson?    Fri Feb 27, 02:29 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson could be an option to be traded to the Dallas Cowboys. Peterson is from Palestine, Texas, which is between Dallas and Houston, and he's acknowledged a desire to finish his career with the Cowboys. 'If a blockbuster deal opens and a team wants to give them something they can't turn down,' Nelson Peterson, Adrian's father, added, 'they're going to have to take a look at it.'

Footballguys view: This move sounds great on paper as Peterson is from Texas. However, the reality is the team might not be able to afford him. They have to decide whether or not to sign DeMarco Murray to a long-term deal.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson on exempt list    Thu Feb 26, 05:43 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's suspension was overturned by U.S. District Judge David S. Doty Thursday, Feb. 26. However, the NFL also announced that they will appeal the ruling, and Peterson will return to the Commissioner's Exempt List. 'Judge Doty's order did not contain any determinations concerning the fairness of the appeals process under the CBA, including the commissioner's longstanding authority to appoint a designee to act as hearing officer,' the league said in a statement.

Footballguys view: Um, okay. Basically he's still suspended until further notice. This will go through an appeals process before we get any traction about where Peterson is going to play in 2015.

  NFL | League to appeal Adrian Peterson ruling    Thu Feb 26, 03:31 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's suspension being vacated by a judge is expected to be appealed by the NFL.

Footballguys view: Of course it will, but this whole thing seems inevitable. After all, they weren't supposed to retroactively use the new rules they set, and yet it certainly seems like they did. If you didn't dump Peterson previously, you might as well hold onto him as his stock will go up - how high depends on where he plays. If you want Peterson at a cheap rate, this is likely your last chance.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson's suspension lifted    Thu Feb 26, 12:19 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's suspension has been overturned after a judge granted a motion from the NFL Players Association to vacate the suspension.

Footballguys view: Now things get interesting. There have been a ton of rumors about Peterson's general unhappiness with how some within the Vikings organization treated him, reports a heated argument between his agent Ben Dogra and Vikes VP Rob Brzezinski which nearly came to blows and rumors (since squashed by his dad) that AP had demanded a trade. The Vikings have made overtures towards bringing him back but you have to wonder if they want to pay him the contract he has (well above what RBs get) and are ready for what could be another PR nightmare if he comes back. If you're a Peterson owner who has not divested themselves of him, you'll have to hold and see where he lands as that will impact his value. If you want to acquire Peterson, this is still the time to do it since his value is in flux, but the low end of his value is coming to a close.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson's father denies report    Mon Feb 23, 06:07 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's father denied a report that Peterson no longer wants to play for Minnesota. Peterson's father said Peterson is still open to a return to the Vikings. Peterson himself said earlier this month that he feels uneasy about returning to Minnesota because he felt there were some people in the organization who wanted him off the field last season. It was also previously reported that Peterson's agent and members of the Vikings' front office had a heated exchange during the NFL Scouting Combine this week.

Footballguys view: We're at the "he said, she said" point with Peterson. He's still suspended and can't ask for reinstatement until after April 15th. We should (might...maybe...please!?!) have a better idea about his situation at that time.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's situation with the team worsened during the NFL scouting combine as his agent and members of Minnesota's front office had a heated verbal altercation, according to sources. Peterson's agent, Ben Dogra, reportedly said that Peterson would never play for the Vikings again.

Footballguys view: Ugh, here we go. This situation looks uglier by the second. At this time, it looks like Peterson's time with the Vikings is done. We'll see if the Vikings trade him away in the near future. He's still suspended indefinitely, and Peterson can't be reinstated before April 15th.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson wants out    Fri Feb 20, 08:43 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson hasn't softened his stance, despite general manager Rick Spielman and head coach Mike Zimmer reaching out to him. Peterson wants a fresh start somewhere else. Peterson said lack of trust is a major issue in his uneasiness to return.

Footballguys view: Okay, here we go! The team has no intentions of cutting him, so a trade would be the only option. Peterson is going to have interesting trade value because of the off-field problems he had last year. Any team that gets him is going to get an instant boost to the ground game. Stay tuned.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson continues to have the support of the team, and general manager Rick Spielman said, 'We expect Adrian Peterson to be part of our football team' next season. President Mark Wilf said earlier this week that the team would welcome Peterson back with open arms.

Footballguys view: Peterson can't be reinstated until April 15, but the NFL Players Association is suing the league in federal court to expedite his return. It's unknown if Minnesota would keep Peterson on his current contract with a base salary of $12.75 million for 2015.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson would be welcomed back to the team, according to chief operating officer Kevin Warren. 'It'd be good for us [to have Peterson back], it'd be good for all the Vikings fans, it'd be good for the NFL,' Warren said.

Footballguys view: At this time, signs are pointing to Peterson returning to the Vikings in 2015. He must first comply with the NFL before he can be reinstated by Commissioner Goodell. Peterson is undergoing counseling in order to fulfill the conditions for reinstatement by the NFL.

When he returns, fullback Jerome Felton won't be in front of him. Felton recently opted out of his contract, and he is now a free agent.

  Vikings | NFLPA against Adrian Peterson counseling    Tue Jan 27, 07:40 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was directed by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to meet with a league-assigned psychiatrist following Peterson's suspension. The National Football League Players Association is now crying foul on the commissioner's mandated counseling, arguing that Goodell did not have the power to enforce such a stipulation. The NFLPA said the terms of Peterson's suspension violate the limits of Goodell's power under the collective bargaining agreement.

Footballguys view: The NFLPA is standing up for their player here as Commissioner Goodell may have overstepped his bounds. Counseling could certainly help Peterson from a PR standpoint as his image was damaged in 2014. It could also help him just be a better person. Counseling could be court-ordered, but Goodell is not judge and jury here.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson wanted by Minnesota    Thu Jan 15, 12:39 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is wanted back by general manager Rick Spielman once he is eligible to apply for reinstatement April 15. 'I don't know if there's a team in the NFL that wouldn't want Adrian Peterson on the football team,' Spielman said Wednesday, Jan. 14.

Footballguys view: We'll see how this plays out. We know the players have expressed a desire to have him back - or at least some have publicly - and of course from a talent standpoint, who wouldn't? The question is how the public will react, how the larger media world (both football and non-football) react and whether the firestorm would be too much.

I think obviously he's a great running back and if it works out that way and things work out and he gets his life in order... then I will be in his corner whenever the decision is made [to bring him back or not].'

Footballguys view: Peterson was told earlier this month that he would serve a two-game suspension next year for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. We'll see if 2015 can be the beginning of his comeback in the pros.

  Vikings | Adrian Peterson considered retirement    Sat Dec 13, 08:12 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he considered retirement from the NFL because he is disappointed with the disciplinary system. 'I've considered retiring from the NFL,' Peterson said. 'I still made $8 million dollars this year. I've thought about getting back into the real estate (business in Texas) I'm already in. That's something I've been interested in, something I'm involved in. I've thought about getting back into that. I've thought about going after the Olympics -- you only live once. It might be time for me to pursue that, as well. I love playing football, don't get me wrong, but this situation is deeper than that. For me, it's like, 'Why should I continue to be a part of an organization or a business that handles players the way they do? Making money off the field anyway, why not continue to pursue that (Olympic) dream and pursue other dreams and hang up the cleats?''

Footballguys view: Not a terrible shock all things being equal. The two big questions are: when (if ever) will he be allowed to get on the field again and who might he be playing for? Are the Vikings done with him? Is the league? We know talent wins out, and Peterson clearly still has talent. It's an interesting set of questions for the offseason.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is likely, but not certain, to be reinstated by league appeals officer Harold Henderson next week, in the opinion of columnist Peter King. The team would have to decide whether to activate him for the final three games.

Footballguys view: Just because Peterson is reinstated, doesn't mean he'll play, and we've heard all kinds of reports of players being able to play after being disciplined and had them not come true.
